In the bad old days of 386 segment:offset memory architectures this was a problem. You could have overlapping segments but pointers inside an object were always in the same segment, so the segment selectors never had to be inspected. Pointers to different objects could indeed have the same offset and would compare equal.

We should follow the standard here: no comparisons between pointers to different arrays (basically).
